The San Bernardino Valley College First Year Experience (FYE) program is designed to successfully transition first year and reentry students into college. We welcome part-time and full-time students that are returning to college or are entering college for the first time. We understand how challenging college can be and we are here to support you while you are navigating this journey.

We welcome students that are entering Valley College from all Adult Education Schools, Job Corps and continuation high schools!

If you are interested in this being a part of our community please reach out to Nicole Jimenez
